BREAKING NEWS | Horse stall issue still unresolved at Austintown racino

Published: Thu, January 23, 2014 @ 12:00 p.m.

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Racing Commission and Penn National Gaming remain at odds over horse stalls at a new Austintown racinio, despite perceived assurances that the issue was resolved.

"Again, I'm disappointed with Penn Gaming," commission Chairman Robert Schmitz said after failing to get a straight commitment from Penn for more stalls at the track. "I'm very, very disappointed. I'm looking for the right answer, and so far I'm getting a conditional answer."

Penn initially planned to construct 10 barns, each containing 76 stalls, at its Austintown racino, but commission members said that wasn't enough to accommodate horses at the site.

No pun intended but this his Horse S**t. The Ohio Gaming Commission needs to produce factual occupancy data from other racing facilities, illustrating that the number of seats and stalls are actually necessary.

They'll keep screwing with this until all they'll have is -----NOTHING!!!
This should be a none issue. IF they need more stalls (???) then they can build them later. Business would dictate the need.
